The Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO) mediated the first contact between the park administrator and more than thirty entities interested in investing in Sereď. One of them was the Belgian company Bruynssel – Vochten, which is the biggest plastic windows producer in Benelux countries, said Švec. It plans to launch production in Sereď in 2008.
